It’s the news we didn’t know we needed: Madagascar The Musical is heading to Manchester in February next year.
Join Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria as they escape captivity and head to the mysterious and elusive “wild”. In this crack-a-lackin’ adaptation of the animated motion picture, you’ll witness all of the chaotic adventures from the film but with the added joy of a wonderfully wacky soundtrack. Don’t know about you, but I’m already bopping to ‘I like to move it, move it’ and we’ve still got a while to go before opening night.
Of course King Julien and his right-hand man Maurice will also make an appearance, as well as those pesky penguins, Skipper, Rico and Private.
Madagascar The Musical is being brought to life by Selladoor Worldwide, the producers behind the likes of Footloose and Fame. And it’s not the first time they’ve done it either! They previously toured the musical to huge critical acclaim in 2018/2019.
Stuart Glover, producer of Madagascar for Selladoor, said “Audiences have been going wild for Madagascar across the globe since we first toured in 2018 and we’re delighted to bring the musical back to the stage for audiences in the UK and Ireland. It’s the perfect treat for the whole family!”
Madagascar The Musical will run from February 8 to February 11, 2024 at Manchester Opera House. Prices start at just £13 and tickets are on sale now.
